From Booklist:

This oft-sanitized Brothers Grimm tale is given a faithful—if indeed grim—retelling in the latest of Isadora’s African-set fairy-tale adaptations, seen most recently with The Fisherman and His Wife (2008). The story races along with every scandalous plot point intact: Trapped by an evil sorceress, Rapunzel uses her long hair to allow a prince entrance into her cloistered tower. When her ensuing pregnancy tips off the sorceress, the vengeful captor tosses the prince into thorn bushes that blind him. As with Isadora’s previous retellings, the text is scant and the abrupt happy ending doesn’t really satisfy—but her wild, colorful Africa makes up for it. Sprawled across double-page spreads, the collage assembly will take repeat examinations to fully appreciate; thick brushstrokes render skin as textured and rich as wood grain, and the landscapes are chaotic patchworks cut from swaths of burnt orange, deep brown, and the sorceress’ stormy purple. Young listeners will also find plenty to scrutinize—it’s a dazzling garden of images, particularly given the paucity of the story’s seeds. Preschool-Grade 2. --Daniel Kraus
